Our process for designing and developing a website includes 7 steps aimed at success for our customers. The process includes:
Step 1: Strategy
The strategy step is one of the most crucial, and often overlooked, steps of a designing a website or application. It’s the launching pad for your project! There are 4 key components of a good web design strategy and they center on these questions:
- What are the goals for redesigning your website?
- What is the message you wanted communicated?
- Who is your target audience?
- How do you stand out from the competition?
Step 2: Plan
When you have developed your strategy, then you can begin planning by asking some important questions, determining what your assets are and defining the content you want to communicate. You will also need to determine where you may need additional outside support or expertise.
Step 3: Design
The top challenges for companies when they want a website designed/redesigned were lack of time (23%) and lack of personnel resources or in-house expertise (22%). That is where Wolf Creek Technology comes in, our design process includes creating a wireframe of your new site and a graphic mock-up to finalize the “look and feel.”
Step 4: Build
One we reach this stage of the process we will create a development version of your site for testing and to finalize all content. Unless you otherwise specify, it will be built on our proven and user friendly GenesisCore framework. This development site will be used as the final once it has passed your review.
Step 5: Test
Before your site is ever made public we will optimize all the content, add an analytic tool, and begin testing to make sure your site is not only pleasing to the eye, but functional. We are looking at keywords, file size, navigational links and images, as well as tweaking each page to be as search engine friendly as possible.
Step 6: Promote
On the actual launch date we will have “all hands on deck” to make sure everything goes smoothly. The site will not be published and made public until you give the ok. At this stage we will assist you with creating an ongoing content strategy and give you the keys to your new site so you can start adding new content such as blogging. The new site will be promoted via social media, blogs, press releases, and email.
Step 7: Analyze
Within 1 week of the launch we will run a check to make sure your site has been indexed with the major search engines. There will be a number of housecleaning items to take care of ensuring the search engines can “crawl” your site to validate its content and structure. We will setup a report system to let you know how your site is doing 1, 3 and 6 months from now.
